Testimonials

Dr. Lee Ann provides a thorough evaluation & walks you through the entire process so you know exactly what to expect during your care. This was my first time to a chiropractor & had some anxiety as to what to expect. She’s uses a gentle technique which alleviated any anxiety I had. She was extremely professional & caring as to the issues I was having. Asked lots of questions & was great with my follow up care! Definitely recommend for chiropractic care.

-Natalia

I’ve never been to a Chiro that has taken as thorough of an intake to be sure she understands my body and what I need. I really appreciate her gentle approach and that it works WITH the nervous system, not AT the nervous system! I recommend her to my massage clients who are looking for a chiropractor who isn’t going to simply bring them in, crack them, and send them on their way in 15 minutes or less. Thank you Lee Ann Kalaba for all you do!
-Andrea

I’ve been receiving regular treatments from Dr. Lee Ann for over a year. My initial visits were for help with pain and nutritional therapy, but now I go for maintenance and I’m happy to report she has helped me change my health and my outlook on life. She is a gifted practitioner who works with you to make the necessary changes to improve your overall health.  Thank you, Dr. Lee Ann!!
